The other night Hubby and I took a quick run to the river. I wanted to see if the cactus was in bloom because the last few times we've been down there they haven't been. We were in luck!

A lone flower.
Almost ready to bloom.
It's not a good idea to wear crocs to the river because those cactus barbs really got stuck in my shoes!
As we were driving along the top road I spotted a few Canada geese but they heard me long before I got over to take pictures. They gently floated out into the current and swiftly sailed down the river. They were quite a distance away when I snapped this picture.
